NIPL: Nemo's Idea for a Play List

This playlist is based on several assumptions about how humans listen to music and organise and generate their own playlists. Please read the NIPL/Assumptions page before continuing.


So the NIPL system, broadly, is:

  • Users rate not just the song, but the song->nextsong pair. (eg, Rammstein and Enya might both get high scores on their own, but Enya->Rammstein is likely to generate a low score)
  • With advanced use of MarkovChains and other sorting cleverness, playlists are generated based on song-pair scores, not just song scores)

Some component parts of NIPL include:

  • Genres (ideas for a comprehensive genre classification system)
  • NUDI (Nemo's Ultimate Disc Identifier)
  • WeightedRandom (The ability to choose the next song in a "random" but usefull manner)

IRC logs

There are a number of IRC logs (well 4) from August and September 2001. In these, NIPL ideas are brainstormed and thrashed out in some detail. To really get a good idea of NIPL, it's worth reading through those. Especially as it's quite likely we've covered alot of potential questions ourselves already.

Logs can be found at http://nemo.house.cx/~nemo/sin/irclogs/


There is now an NIPL/Implementation page
